I had swapped out the Airflex for metal stems. The wheel cover clips are held on by rivets that allowed two of them to come loose. With only two loose the wheel cover rotated up against the stems and just sat there and vibrated. This vibration caused the wearing effect.
I will be replacing the rivets with stainless steel pop rivets and then securing the cover with ties..
The current riveting system uses less than adequate strength rivets. It is a design flaw.
If I new the manufacturer of the covers I would summit a report to them.
